One of the Sahel's sharper singer-songwriters, Sidi Touré is touring as a representative of Gao, Mali, currently under control by Islamist militants. His new album, Alafia, was recorded in Bamako and Paris and flows effortlessly with Mali's blues-inflected guitars and supple polyrhythms. While he doesn't break any new ground, he offers a clear line into one of the world's great, and currently endangered, musical traditions.
